The Anna Police Department would like to invite the community to join them on Oct. 3 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Slayter Creek Park to help celebrate the 34th Annual National Night Out.

This is a great opportunity to meet the members of the Anna Police Department, as well as members of the Anna Fire Department. National Night Out promotes crime prevention and helps build police/community partnerships. This year there will be live music, a bounce house, face painting, a balloon artist and a special appearance by McGruff the Crime Dog.

Weather and calls permitting, PHI Medical will have their helicopter on display. The Fire Department will be grilling hot dogs, and the newly formed police explorer post will be handing out candy and trick or treat bags. Anna PD encourages everyone to come out for fun, fellowship and to help us keep Anna one of the safest communities in Collin County!
